Watch it: Us Now documentary looks at the social Web and ponders future of gov’t

Us Now is a film about the Internet, social organization and the potential future of government, now available to view online

The concepts aren’t new, but somehow watching these ideas in documentary film format drives the point home in a new way: The folks that invented democracy had no way of conceiving of the means of spreading information, eliciting feedback and organizing people that are now emerging. When the barriers to acquiring information and public participation have dwindled to literally zero for the first time in human history, what will government look like?

Interesting stuff.
